    Her best album yet, a definite rebound after the beautiful but somewhat slight Life For Rent. There isn't a lot of singles here, but that's not a bad thing. The songs creep into your skull and stay with you. You'll be humming them to yourself soon. Check out Don't Believe in Love, Grafton Street, It Comes and It Goes and Burnin Love.

    I continue to enjoy Dido's music, which is in some ways hasn't changed over the years, but has still matured. Her voice remains gorgeous and the music is personal and lovely.

    Mature and so refreshingly different to the sound most artistes are going for today.

    It's really more intense than everything she done before. It's her best album ever.

    An elegant fusion of real instrumentation attempting to imitate electronic sounds which perfectly blends with Dido's voice and lyrics. The album contains a good variety of sounds which keeps the listener engaged.

    Even though it brings some blues, here we can find the most confessional and beautifully produced album of her career. An inspiring kiss-goodbye to her late father

    Amazing record, one of the most beautiful and instrospectives albums I have ever heard.
    I love it so much, Dido's voice it's simply magnificent and she is very talented.

  1. The emotion in these sad, subtle songs seems inherent enough, though you may still find yourself wishing she'd allowed the slightest hint of it to creep into her voice.
  2. This album is a mature and thoughtful collection of songs and a fine memorial to her father, who would have been right to be proud.

    Dido's third solo album reveals an unyielding fear of intimacy, her mellow trip-pop (coproduced by Jon Brion) buckling underneath sadness and alienation.
